With pleasure Rob, and for sure if some of them give positive results.

Update on my earlier post (pg 2 of this series). Those first germinations have yielded some flowers. One of interest is a yellow, looking very like #1100 in coloring and petalage. The mother is New Dawn x yellow mini which has a different flower shape and a more pink coloration. Another rather double with petal edge that turns pink with age is likely Brite Eyes x #1100. So far, so good, but we need about 3 more bloom cycles and a long summer to know what they really are. Many others have not bloomed. That is expected in a non-repeat x repeat cross of 2 tetraploids. Perhaps some will bloom later this spring. Spring hopes eternal.

Lots of germination still happening and two of the more interesting to me are:

Metis x Ruglauca

This should be a solid zone 3 rose and hopefully there will be rebloom. Lots of species genes in this one.

The other is:

Canadian Shield x Campfire

Combined two Canadian roses. This is my first germination using Canadian Shield as the seed parent. There is lots of very hardy genes here. Should be at least zone 3 as well.

Rob, Good luck with those seedlings! I looked at the parentage of the first and was ready to say how interesting it is when I clicked on the second one: both look like interesting possibilities! I look forward to seeing how they turn out.
